What We Offer
Seniors Care is one of the fastest growing industries of the 21st century and as the largest private operator of seniors’ homes in British Columbia Retirement Concepts has a lot to offer our employees.
Working for Retirement Concepts means meaningful employment with;
- an industry leader
- a dynamic and forward-looking innovator
- a stable family owned and BC-based community partner.
We are proud of our reputation as being an innovative and growth-orientated employer of choice. For our employees this means opportunities for learning and career development as we continue to expand our operations. We also favor internal promotion wherever possible.
At each facility you will find a home-like atmosphere where staff feel like part of a wider community, a ‘family’. Our experienced managers in each facility and knowledgeable Head Office staff are there to ensure that the necessary support, guidance and resources you need are provided.
Employees are offered competitive wages and benefits, flexible shifts as well as regular educational in-services and developmental training sessions provided by our full time Clinical Educators. Facility-based staff appreciation events are also a regular feature.
In addition we have a well-established Employee Referral Program (ERP) which encourages our staff to recommend friends and former colleagues, and rewards them if their referral is hired.
Partnerships with local colleges
For those who are interested in learning more about a career in elder care we have partnered with Discovery Community College (in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island), Sprott Shaw Community College (at Summerland in the BC Interior) and Academy of Learning (Nanaimo).
Partnering with these colleges provides students with increased access to established, reputable and local Residential Care Aide/Health Care Assistant programs.
